Whoa! Keanu Reeves, 48, was spotted at Cannes looking quite different from the slim-hipped looker he was a decade ago. The actor, whose last hit movie was in 2003, which saw the release of both The Matrix Revolutions and Something’s Gotta Give, is at the French film festival to promote his directorial debut, The Man of Tai Chi, but he didn’t seem quite ready for the spotlight on Sunday, May 19.
Wearing baggy jeans, a gray V-neck tee, and a linen blazer, the former hunk sported stubble, shaggy hair, and a noticeably bloated appearance as he stepped off the yacht “Odessa” in the French Riviera.
The next day, Reeves cleaned up, thankfully, for his movie’s photocall. Dressed in a black blazer and navy tee, the actor looked groomed, clean-shaven, and more like the actor audiences first swooned for in Speed.
The actor spoke to GQ last year about aging. “My knees are well aware of it. Mortality is very different when you’re 20 to when you’re 50,” he said. “It creeps in here and there, doesn’t it? You look out the f–king window and then you think about your eyes closing.”
